Women in Science Profiles (WiSci files)
Announcement from WPSU -- This year (2016), WPSU is producing an exciting project aimed at inspiring young women to enter careers in the captivating fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The Women in Science Profiles (WiSci files) will introduce viewers to local women in STEM fields through a series of short video profiles and live, interactive online chats. More information about the project is attached to this post.
We are particularly interested in reaching girls of middle and high school age, as research has shown that girls of this age are beginning to consider career options, but at the same time begin to lose interest in STEM fields, both academically and as a career option.
We would like to invite PAESTA members and their students to engage as viewers and participants in this exciting project. Please feel free to share this email with your colleagues. If you would like to participate, or would like more information about the project, please email Amy Ricketts at ARR217@PSU.edu (link sends e-mail). The WiSci files team hopes that you will join us in this valuable learning experience.
